that our troops have made thus far in afghanistan. and then john boehner comes up and sort of supports the president. here's house speaker john boehner on the president's afghanistan plan. >> i am generally supportive of the plan because there is enough flexibility in the withdrawal to take into considerations conditions on the ground and that is critically important, i think, for the long-term success there. >> maybe it was just the golf game together. >> right. >> has obama hit the sweet spot here by annoying everybody? >> well, if he can have a political sweet spot in a war, then this would be it. for this president, the idea of splitting the difference, of having people on the left and the right attack and you then being somewhere in a reasonable middle and that reasonable middle being shoulder-to-shoulder with his new golf buddy, who happens to be clashing with him on just about every other subject, that's exactly what he wants to be in. and, of course, that's there not just because of what the troop have done in afghanistan but of course, because the whole landscape has changed,
, the house speaker john boehner says he does not buy that argument and a lot of democrats are saying they don't buy that either, including dick durbin, so there is a lot of back and forth about this, tamron, but the white house is holding its ground, and sheer what press secretary jay carney had to say a few moments ago. >> is there a magical association with the 90th day that i'm not aware of? we have not been beating around the bush talk tact fact that we support, endorse, appreciate this resolution like the one dish mean, it is for congress to take the action, obviously. >> so there you heard press secretary jay carney saying they would welcome a congressional resolution, but they do not need one to continue in libya. we should say that the top democrat of the house nancy pelosi is stand big the president, but as you mentioned, tamron, dennis kucinich and nine other lawmakers have filed a suit against the white house to end the u.s. involvement in libbia, and others including speaker boehner are saying they are looking at the possibility of withholding funds from the mission. that is where

of the house john boehner is speaking with reporters this morning on why debt talks in washington d.c. have broken down. saying that tax cuts would not have passed the house. we are following the very latest twist in the osama bin laden talks on deficit and reduction. house majority leader eric cantor has backed away citing an impasse over taxes. "the vice president biden deserves a great deal of leadership in bringing us this far regardless of the progress that has been made." this must be resolved before the discussions can continue. i will not be participating in the meeting today. i believe it is time for the president to speak clearly and resolve the tax issue. >>> the national unemployment rate is over9%. it is the vets that have been hit hardest. the male vets unemployment rate is 30%. we support the job fair here on the "uss intrepid" in new york city. peter alexander has more. how many companies have decided to come out to the fair and what is the job prospect for someone who shows up today? >> reporter: that is a good question. we have seen good applicants here. that shows the cha
president obama. he is out playing golf, with time with john boehner. this is the president -- i've been keeping track of this -- this is his 73rd round of golf since taking office. that is more golf than i have played in a decade. my handicap is hell a lot better than he is. i wonder about the optics out this. there he is out on the golf course while millions of americans are struggling to put food on the the table. he is not rolling up his sleeves. he is playing 73 rounds of golf. >> i think it goes to the heart what a lot of republicans have been hitting over -- he doesn't get the financial heartache that most americans feel right now. it misses him. one other point is kind of interesting and says something about the business that you and i are in. do you remember when president bush quit playing golf because he thought it was wrong for him to be seen out on the golf course while we had men and women fighting in war. he thought that was wrong. he quit doing it. he got ridiculed, laughed at, mocked by democrats and everybody in the media made fun of him. most americans heard that and t
not matched resources with missions or requirements. that has been the key. >> on that point, john boehner wrote a letter to president obama today saying, please remind us of the legal justifications for our involvement in the conflict in libya. what is he trying to do? does he have a point because there is so much public specter -- public skepticism about this? >> i believe so. there has been more violation of presidential reporting to the congress than compliance in many respects, but i think john boehner has a point. i think there has to be involvement at some point of our congress in the decision when we are making more, even with nato. i think it is extremely important. >> how can nato hold together when you have america increasingly unwilling to foot most of the cost? germany is willing to put the cost but not deploy the soldiers. how can this organization even exist? >> is going to be difficult. i have always said -- and i do not want to sound you s-centric, but without u.s. leadership -- u.s.-center, but without u.s. leadership, nato is going to fold, and we have not seen strong le
used to think that the war powers resolution was unconstitutional -- that is what john boehner said before -- are now harkening to eight. the democrats are a little more consistent. every president skirts and the war powers act. there is the way to do it, and it is to cut off the funds. >> i don't see that happening, but there is consistency on the part of dennis kucinich and walter johns here, that they took that position under the previous administration. what i find rather disturbing or rather fascinating is to watch these people readjust, whether it is john boehner becoming a boarding and supporter of the war powers act or the democrats -- born-again a supporter of the war powers act or the democrats who railed about the need for the war powers act under george bush saying this is not really a military action. >> even though the drones worked pretty well, i cannot help but believe there will come a time when we regret the ease. we aren't trying to assassinate gaddafi, although we don't quite add that -- admit that. >> we are not. nato is. >> but we provide 75% of nato. nato is u

in to close. he may have to come in earlier now. house speaker john boehner and majority leader harry reid also weighed in on the stalemate. >> i know the frustration that he feels when democrat members continue to want to bring tax hikes into the conversation. and insist we have to raise taxes on the american people. i think he's made it clear the conversations could continue if they take the tax hikes out of the conversation. >> now with what kyle and cantor has done, it's on the hands of the speaker and the president and sadly me. >> meanwhile house mrnt leader ploes nancy pelosi was critical of republicans for not being willing to compromise with democrats on the tax proposals. >> the point is that we're willing to have a balanced package. they're not. they're not. they don't want to talk about taxes. but it's interesting. i knew. we all said what they're going to do is say even though we can agree on certain cuts, you won't go for them unless we raise taxes for the american people. no we're not. we're saying to make our tax system fair so everyone pays their fair share. republican cal
suppose. do you think that john boehner would be asking those of a president named bush, for instance? >> no. you know, ron, i was just listening to that, and i'm sure all our viewers were doing the same saying why didn't john boehner or virtually any republican ask any of those questions, which were all the same questions, before we went into iraq? the answers were not supplied, and, indeed, some the answers we still don't have, even though we now still have 48,000 troops left in iraq. so, you know, this is a lot of theater. i hate to be cynical here, but there's a lot of theater ricks here. they did not have the vote to cut off the funds. they probably won't cut off the funds. republicans are log going after the president on libya because they're still wary of going after him on iraq and afghanistan. those are two wars that have their roots in bush years. they would still like to brag about at the time. >> well, i suspect that if muammar qadhafi disappears, in issue will quickly evaporate and disappear as well. thank you, howard fineman. pleasure to talk to you, as always. >>> comi

-- that is what john maynard said before - -- now -- john boehner said before. the democrats have been a little more consistt every president skirt the laws or powers act and as a way for congress -- -- every president skirts the war powers act there is way for congress to end, to cut off the funding. . >> there is a consistency between dennis kucinich and walter jones here, that they had taken the position under the previous administration. what is disturbing, or fascinating, is to watch tse people. just wheth it is john boehner -- people readjust, whether it is john bhner becoming a born- again at supporter of the war powers act, or democrats saying this is not realllly a military action in libya. >> i cannot help t think that even though the drones have rked pretty well, there wl, a time where we regret these -- there will come time where we regret the ease. we are trying to assassinate a head of state although we don't quite add eight. but we are -- >> we are not. nato is. >> ok, but we provide 75% of nato. natos us. all these things can work, i have the uneasy feeling with the time -- the
